You need to see a doctor as this is nothing to fool with. You're in an area close to the brain, plus the Eustachian tube that leads down from your ear/s, leads right into your throat, taking the infectious poisons in your ear straight into your system. However until you go, and to try to relieve some of the pain, apply a compress consisting of a clean washrag, with warm water. Use water as warm as you can stand. After a couple of minutes, soak the rag again, as it will cool down fast. You may have to do this as many as ten to fifteen times, over a thirty minuter period to start to feel relief. Take Ibuprofen as this is an anti-inflammatory drug. Get down to the nearest clinic, and have this checked out. You need antibiotics pronto. They must be prescribed by the doctor. If you try to use some one else's prescription they may have left around, it could be the wrong antibiotic. Antibiotics break down the cell walls so they can enter, and do their thing. The wrong type, or not taking them for the full period stated, 1.Can lead to them being ineffective. 2. Can lead to your body developing an immunity to them. 3. Can harm you, if you are allergic to certain antibiotics,(Penicillin family, etc.), and this antibiotic, unknown to you, is part of that antibiotic family.
